His wonderful works to the children of men!

“Fools, because of their transgression,
And because of their iniquities, were afflicted. Their soul abhorred all manner of food, And they drew near to the gates of death. Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, And He saved them out of their distresses. He sent His word and healed them, And delivered them from their destructions. Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness, And for His wonderful works to the children of men! Let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, And declare His works with rejoicing.” – Psa. 107:17-22

These all go together to form a refrain like our modern hymns with their choruses.

The wrath of the Lord was kindled against His people

“Therefore the wrath of the Lord was kindled against His people, so that He abhorred His own inheritance. And He gave them into the hand of the Gentiles, and those who hated them ruled over them. Their enemies also oppressed them, and they were brought into subjection under their hand. Many times He delivered them; But they rebelled in their counsel, and were brought low for their iniquity.” – Psa. 106:40-43

There are real consequences for defying God.

They soon forgot His works

They soon forgot His works; They did not wait for His counsel, but lusted exceedingly in the wilderness, and tested God in the desert. And He gave them their request, but sent leanness into their soul.” -Psa. 106:13-16

How often are we the same?

They performed His signs among them

“He sent Moses His servant, and Aaron whom He had chosen. They performed His signs among them, and wonders in the land of Ham.” – Psa. 105:26-27

Wonders done by God through Moses.

Enter into His gates with thanksgiving

Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.” – Psa. 100:4

Be thankful to Him.

The King’s strength loves justice

The King’s strength also loves justice; You have established equity; You have executed justice and righteousness in Jacob.” – Psa. 99:4

The King’s strength loves justice.

With righteousness He shall judge the world

“For He is coming to judge the earth. With righteousness He shall judge the world, And the peoples with equity.” – Psa. 98:9

With righteousness God shall judge the world.

You who love the Lord, hate evil

You who love the Lord, hate evil! He preserves the souls of His saints; He delivers them out of the hand of the wicked.” – Psa. 97:10

God preserves and delivers.

The heavens declare His righteousness

The heavens declare His righteousness, And all the peoples see His glory.” – Psa. 97:6

All God’s Creation witness His majesty.

Your comforts delight my soul

“In the multitude of my anxieties within me, Your comforts delight my soul.” – Psa. 94:19

God’s comforts delight the soul.
